“The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud. The thicker the mud, the more beautiful the flower blooms.” This Buddhist wisdom certainly rings true for Tina Turner’s life story. The seed of Tina Turner was planted deep in the Tennessee mud, Nutbush to be precise. A small town in the deep-south of the United States. Tina is not a person for nostalgia. So when she left Nutbush in her mid-teens, she hardly ever looked back.
By Erin Shaw Street – You know that Tina Turner song “Nutbush City Limits?” It’s about a real place–Nutbush, Tennessee, where she grew up. (Go on, you know you want to dance in your chair just thinking of the melody.) This week a museum dedicated to Tina’s legacy–and the community where she was raised–opens just down the road from Nutbush. The Flagg Grove School, where she spent her formative years, opens to the public this Friday after a painstaking restoration.

A new upload on Youtube has been brought to our attention by our good friend Kerstin. Last year, David Bowie attended Tina Turner’s wedding to Erwin Bach on the banks of lake Zurich in the newlywed couple Chateau Algonquin. There, he performed a rather impromptu performance of ‘Tonight’ and the Elvis classic ‘And I love You So’. The band however was not present, as you can tell it’s a backing track. You can feel that Bowie in the company of his dear wife Iman was having a great time!
Love Thing was the third single of Tina Turner’s 1991 compilation album Simply The Best. A hugely overlooked gem, here at The Tina Turner Blog we think that this song is among the best Tina did in the 1990’s (or in any decade for that matter). Inside this post, why we think Love Thing is… pretty much everything.
Back in November 2012, a new DVD entitled ‘Ike & Tina Turner On The Road: 1971-1972′ was released. The movie consists of footage shot by world-renowned rock photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya while touring together with the Ike & Tina Turner revue in the early 1970’s. Bob and Nadya developed a close relationship with the duo, and the DVD features many candid on stage and off stage moments. The Tina Turner Blog had an exclusive interview with Bob Gruen about the dvd and his personal relationship with Ike and Tina. We never had much time to edit the video interview but today, it’s finally here! Enjoy!
Last week, a new commercial for Swisscom, a Swiss telecommunications provider, was released. Star of the promotional clip: Tina Turner. At first there was excitement: excitement about new footage of Tina looking youthful, energetic and happy. With Mrs Turner-Bach now officially retired, such a rare public appearance is usually cause for joy among fans. However, this initial excitement was partly overshadowed by disappointment. Disappointment mainly caused by a TV interview Tina gave to a Swiss news show in which she states that, in fact, she prefers to be inaccessible for her fans.
